Default Messed up Computer

Ok i have an old computer Pentium 133, and i try to reformat it but it wouldn't let me format c: it kept saying format not supported. There was two partitions so i used fdisk to change it so there's only one partition.

But it won't let me access that partition it sais drive not ready abort, retry, ignore. When i use the boot disk it loads the diagnositc files on drive d: but it won't let me access drive c: and the CDROM takes Drive e:

Any Ideas

Use partition magic, to format the partition, then, try and access it.

Are you on MSN?

Sounds like you need to use FDISK to delete the remaining partition and then create a new partition using all of the space on the drive.
